Product Description

Tribot is one of the latest in the line of personal robots from WowWee. This innovative talking companion is more than just your average robot -- Tribot is fresh off the robot assembly line and is ready to interact with you whether it is playing with his built-in games or telling you jokes. Remember though, he's only a young robot so he will need help from you to give him commands using the remote controller. Requires eight "AA" and three "AAA" batteries, not included. Measures 9"L x 8.5"W x 15"H.

This is a fun robot -very quirky, but once you get over the jokes etc there is not much to it. It is basically a glorified remote control car.
The arms are manually adjusted. The only thing that moves are the eyes and wheels. It does not actually do much -the inbuilt games are rubbish.
Maybe kids will find it fun but as an adult i think it is a bit pointless.
It is quirky though -there is something appealing about it.

Best WowWee Robot Yet!! 20 Sept. 2008
By Telemachus - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
Of all the WowWee robots, I think Tribot is more fun than the Robosapien and far, far beyond WowWee Robotics RoboPanda. After being disappointed by Robopanda, we were really excited to see how Tribot would build off that failure.

Tribot does not look as human as WowWee Robosapien with Mini Robo - Silver, but it moves better, quicker, and more efficiently. The three-wheel configuration works great!! The biggest innovation is the tilt-sensitive remote control combined with a very intuitive remote which makes it much simpler to operate than Robosapien.

Like the RoboPanda, the sarcastic dialogue might get tiresome, but its not as immediately annoying. Still, there is something familiar and friendly with Robosapien's grunts. I wish Tribot had two modes to allow users to choose coherent or incoherent dialogue!! Uh-huh!!

Great toy; but man, oh man...... 30 Nov. 2008
By Elisa N. Abbott - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
This toy is wonderful, my son has been asking for it all year. Finally we bought it. It's huge its fun. He ABSOLUTELY loves it. The only catch is it's a battery eater. After putting 8 batteries in him the first day. The very next day he's saying his batteries are low. That's all he will say I need more batteries! I highly recommend anyone buying this toy buy rechargeable and take the time to recharge him at night.

Did not meet expectations 11 Dec. 2008
By maxxpwr - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
I can't remember the last time I was so utterly disappointed with a toy to return it, but this robot did it. It is such a half-baked product on so many levels.

Let me get the positives out of the way first - the three-wheel omni-directional drive is neat and gives the robot great mobility.

That's about it.

Negatives:
* The controls are annoying - IR is good for remote controlling your TV, but not motion control; IR has too much delay, its range is too limited, and requires line of sight. All remote controlled toys should use RF. The IR control is very laggy and sometimes plain unresponsive. For example, Even though the robot is capable of of some pretty neat maneuvers due to the wheel design, it is nearly impossible to accurately control the robot - just trying to stop at the correct angle when spinning in place is frustratingly difficult. The tilt control is gimmicky at best.

*After you play with the robot for a while, you realize just how utterly simple the toy is, there is no depth. So it can record and playback your input. So what? Given how inaccurate the controls are, even if you did record your control input, the robot will not be following the same path on playback because of how imprecise it is. So what's the point of playback? The roaming free feature is also poorly implemented and of little value, as the robot will just sit there grinding its wheels against an obstacle that's too low for it to "see". In the end, the play value of this robot is not much more than that of a remote controlled car, but even there the IR control system will aggravate you to no end.

* If you look at the robot on display, you might expect for it to have a bit more motorized features. But actually it doesn't. Other than that the wheels turn, eyebrows, ears, and a little light pops out on occasion, nothing else on this robot is motorized. Not the arms, not the torso, and not the neck joint. It will sit in whatever pose you put it in.

* The robot has to be played on a hardwood floor. Yes it will run on carpet, but it will be very slow and sort of sway back and forth as it moves around. Its wheel design depends on being able to slip around. And if it runs full speed into an area rug edge, it will tip over.

After letting my kid have at it for 3 days, I decided it was not worth the money. It is just a poorly designed toy.

A Very Fun Toy! 1 Jan. 2010
By toevlugsoord - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
This was my #1 wish for Christmas and my husband bought it for me off Amazon - what a great price ($39). He read the reviews on Amazon and realized that there were some unhappy customers but for the price, it was worth the risk to buy me what I'd wanted. He also bought rechargeable batteries (we'd already planned to do so eventually so why not now).

When I opened Tribot on Christmas, I was so excited! He was exactly how I thought he would be based on the videos I'd seen on WowWee's site with a very likable voice. You can't expect TOO much from a $40 robot. He is going to be able to maneuver around, entertain you, but he isn't going to be able to perform brain surgery! In other words, lower your expectations and just enjoy how cool it is to have a robot.

You can play games with him (which are actually kind of hard), set him to be an alarm, set him into "guard" mode, move him around at will or just watch him move around. He says the cutest little things! I love it! And after 1 week of playing with him a little each day, he is still going strong with the batteries that we put in him on the first day.

ROBBIE THE ROBOT, MOVE ASIDE !! 10 Dec. 2008
By Choclodite Lensman - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
Not a bad robot - looks great - kinda like the ideal toy company robot of the 60's with all of the moving gears...it's pretty neat with all of it's infrared stuff - and smart robot features....it's a little difficult to steer and you would think a robot of this age would steer more like a remote control race car. I can't slam it for the Amazon price...I wouldn't pay $100 for it like Target and KB Toys has it marked. It does have some really neat features like the "guard robot" feature or the alarm. The games can be neat for a kid with patience. I purchased this product because I have a robbie the robot that I purchased from the early 90's...so this is an added one.
I'd say it's a pretty nice toy.
